Joe Lomax Jr was a member of the Michael & Son Family. On September 27, 2016, Joe unexpectedly passed due to cardiac arrest while on a job site. Customers who met Joe described him as friendly, comforting and reassuring. Not only was he one of the most respected plumbers in Raleigh but he was also a dedicated family man, survived by his loving wife, five children and thirteen grandchildren.
To honor Joe, we have changed the name of our annual golf tournament to the Joe Lomax Classic. This year we have partnered with Mended Hearts of The Triangle (Chapter 394) and hope to raise $25,000 for their efforts in supporting heart patients and their families and promoting heart health awareness. Please join us in supporting a great cause and in honoring a colleague who is dearly missed.
Mended Hearts is the largest peer-to-peer heart patient support network in the world. Established over 65 years ago, Mended Hearts serves over 460 hospitals around North America and has assisted more than 200,000 patients and their families in its history. With the proceeds from the Joe Lomax Classic tournament, Mended Hearts will be able to provide its volunteers with the resources they need and will be able to begin providing additional preventative education and community support such as nursing scholarships for Wake Tech students in need.
